Score with SEO 5: Images

Ebooks November 08, 2022

Do you want to get started with SEO but you don’t know where to start? Search Engine Optimization (SEO) leads more and better traffic to your leisure venue’s website. 

Basic SEO is important for Google to consider your website as relevant. If I search for “bowling venue near me” in your area, you want to be the trending website. 

Image optimization helps you rank higher in Google while improving your page’s visibility too. Other ways to improve the SEO of your website are:

  1. Keywords
  2. Meta titles and descriptions
  3. Content
  4. Page loading time
  5. Images
  6. Linking
  7. Broken links
  8. Mobile friendly
  9. Clean URL’s
  10. Improve low performing pages

Optimize your images 

Just like written content, visual content can improve your SEO. Image optimization helps you rank higher in Google while improving your page’s visibility too. When optimizing your images, these are the things you should keep in mind: 

Make sure your images aren’t too large

By too large, we mean a very high resolution. Large images make your page load very slow. Depending on the amount of images on your page, try to keep the resolution as low as possible. Images between 50 and 100 KB should do the trick. 

Include a relevant alt text

An alt text is a short, written description of an image used within an HTM code. The best way to write the alt text is by considering the content of the image. Be descriptive, distinctive and relevant. For example, the alt text of an image of a bachelor bowling party at your venue could be: “Bachelor bowling party at Your Venue’s Name”. A relevant alt text improves your ranking in regular Google search results and image search results. 

You should be able to easily enter the alt text in the image section in the backend of your website. Tools like Yoast can help you optimize your images.

Now you know how to use images in a way that boosts your SEO as well.
